Ba Li Laffa, meaning “I feel like having a Laffa” in Hebrew, is a Mediterranean grill conveniently located off Bathhurst St. on a shopping strip in the Jewish-populated neighborhood of Thornhill. Ba Li Laffa is known for reasonably priced fresh food packed with Israeli flavors. The restaurant is a perfect place to pretend you are dining in Israel, at least for the duration of your lunch and dinner. Owner Ephraim, who is a gracious host, makes sure the atmosphere is friendly and casual, and the décor in earth tones with dark-wood furniture contributes to a warm ambiance. The flat-screen TV hanging in the corner, characteristic for Israeli-style eateries, makes you feel at home even more. Ba Li Laffa also prides itself in efficient and friendly service. For diners' convenience there is a parking lot in front of the restaurant, as well as an outdoor seating area.
The Middle-Eastern flavors abound on the menu. As the name suggests, they have laffas (and pitas too), stuffed with delicious Israeli favorites such as falafel, shawarma, chicken or lamb shish kebob, salads, and a variety of specialty hummus made in-house. All of these can be ordered as platters for a satisfying meal, in addition to many other succulent dishes such as tender Lamb Chops or their famous Lamb Shish Kebob, marinated and grilled to your liking. Another highly recommended dish for the meat lover inside of all of us is Back Ribs - their famous slow cooked giant meaty ribs, grilled in their famous BBQ sauce. Not to be overlooked is their great couscous.
What many customers do not realize, however, is that in addition to traditional Mediterranean cuisine they also have Chinese food, and sushi is now available every Sunday and Thursday! For dessert go for the Middle Eastern sweets, such as their homemade baklava or Moroccan shabakia. To create an Israeli feel to your party, keep in mind that Ba Li Laffa also does catering, offering special packages on their catering menu.

My family ate here last year. The food was great, ambiance was very nice, and the staff was very pleasant.
